2015 Spring Break Hunger Fight
March 17 to 19 Register HERE!

We are inviting students, parents, family and all community members, ages five and above, to our third annual Spring Break Hunger Fight on Tuesday, March 17, Wednesday, March 18 and Thursday, March 19 for 90-minute shifts between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. We will host the event at our packaging center this year, NOT at the Iowa State Fairgrounds as we have in the past. The address of our new location is:

The Patty Cownie Center, home of Meals from the Heartland
357 Lincoln Street
West Des Moines, Iowa 50265

You can donate and promote the event among your group in preparation of packaging nutritious meals that will help alleviate suffering caused by hunger in our community and around the world!

Support Volunteer positions are also critical to the success of the event and are a great way to take your involvement to the next level beyond packaging. Registration is now open for packaging volunteers and for the following support positions:

Floor Support – Duties include: train and supervise packaging volunteers, stock raw product in the packaging stations(s), help place packaged boxes on pallet and maintain clean and organized packaging station(s). Heavy lifting may be included, but not required. Five-hour shifts are available between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Event Greeter – Duties include: greeting and checking in volunteers, answering general questions about the event and performing other related duties. Four-hour shifts are available between 7:30 a.m. and 4:15 p.m.
